Loving the Funk

I stumbled across this song today and absolutely loved it. Called “Mother of All Funk Chords” by Kutiman-Thru-You. You can’t get it on iTunes, because it’s just a YouTube video. Fascinating combo of different other videos makes for one fun song. Enjoy:

Michael Jackson

Hard to believe Jackson is dead. He was only 50 — a year younger than me. I remember how I used to play the heck out of the “Off the Wall” album when I was stationed over in England, back in 1979. A great musician; a creepy kind of guy.

Cheering for Cinderella

Everyone and his brother, and his sister, and their second cousins, has probably seen the video of Susan Boyle on Britain’s Got Talent. I mean the video hits all the notes that we love: a Cinderella who looks to be a flop, but shocks everyone with what she can do. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video:

Well, after achieving overnight, and well-deserved, fame, another video has been released. It seems that she recorded the old Julie London tune, “Cry Me a River,” for a charity CD.

What do you think? Is this woman going to get a recording contract ASAP? I know that I’m cheering her on and hoping that she wins the reality show contest. Me and another 20 million folks.

Do Re Mi Fun

I’m sure everyone’s already seen this, but I have to post it. A song from a musical, a busy train station, and something fun happening. I’d be giddy if I saw something like this happening around me.

Diva’s Lament

Haven’t we all felt like this at one time or another in our life?

Fun and Fascinating

Thanks to the always entertaining Fabulon, this lovely Labuat site kept me quite entertained.

Let the site load and play. Use your cursor to move to the music.

Very well done!

A Little Saajan Ji Ghar Aaye Anyone?

Here’s a video from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It’s the engagement party. If you know the movie, you know this engagement can’t last. After all, Shahrukh Khan is the star of the film, and he’s  meant for Kajol’s character, not Salman Khan (the groom in this clip). Love will triumph! Singing will occur! Dancing will break out among everyone!

That’s Bollywood for you.

And how come any engagement parties I go to are so staid? I think every party should have a song and a choreographer to make it all much more festive.
